Tuesday, August 11, 2020

- DISH acquires customer relationships and related Ting Mobile assets

TORONTO and ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DISH Network Corporation (NASDAQ: DISH) and Tucows Inc. (NASDAQ: TCX, TSX: TC) today announced that DISH has chosen Tucows as a technology partner for its retail wireless business. With a history of digital innovation, Tucows has made the strategic decision to offer Mobile Services Enabler (MSE) solutions, beginning with DISH. As part of this agreement, DISH has also acquired Ting Mobile assets, including customer relationships.

Effective August 1, 2020, most Ting Mobile customers across the U.S. became customers of DISH. These customers will continue to use their current phones and will enjoy the same rates and excellent customer experience. As with DISH's recently acquired Boost customers, these Ting Mobile customers will have access to the new T-Mobile network.

In mobile, Tucows will focus on growing its MSE business, delivering a wide range of functions including billing, activation, provisioning, and funnel marketing to mobile providers. Tucows provides leading enablement platforms in domain registration and fiber-to-the-home. DISH is now the first Tucows mobile technology customer.

Following is a statement on the agreement by Elliot Noss, Tucows CEO:
"DISH has acquired a well-loved mobile brand, a loyal customer base and a proven platform. Tucows will now refocus our mobile business on building and maintaining platforms that simplify complex systems while still maintaining strong, consistent cash flows. Ting Mobile customers will surely reap the rewards of a better cost structure, and the U.S. mobile industry has an aggressive competitor in DISH, a company well-positioned to disrupt the industry."

Following is a statement by John Swieringa, Group President, Retail Wireless and DISH COO:
"Today, we welcome Ting Mobile customers to DISH. Ting Mobile is a great brand that stands for better value in wireless, and we are eager to begin delivering our award-winning customer service to Ting subscribers. Our agreement with Tucows will accelerate our digital and operational capabilities in wireless. Elliot and his team have a strong track record as entrepreneurs and innovators, and we are excited to partner with them on our wireless venture."
